Digital Sensors and Sensor Sysstems


Abstract: Aiming at requirements as low cost, low power consumption, large area, multi-parameter, multi-site and high access speed of livestock and poultry house environment monitoring network, the paper proposed a poultry house environmental monitoring system which meets the agricultural Internet of Things architecture. This system can achieve timely monitoring parameters as air temperature, air humidity, soil moisture, CO2 concentration, light intensity and NH3 concentration of multi-site online. The paper designed ZigBee sensor nodes to achieve multi-parameter collection as well as embedded coordinator gateway to support access control of remote clients on coordinator gateway. The system prototype collects poultry house environmental information timely and accurately to meet requirements of modern grassland environmental monitoring.


Keywords: Internet of things, Livestock (poultry) homes, Environmental monitoring, Sensor networks, Embedded gateway.
